AmeriCorps members with City Year New Hampshire were spotted across the political blogosphere as they sat front and center at a Ask Mitt Anything event this morning at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH.
Check both here and here for photos and video of corps members waiting for and then listening to former Governor Mitt Romney (MA-R). Governor Romney was an early supporter and Board Chair of City Year Boston during his time with Bain and Company, Inc., which he proudly boasts in his official campaign bio.
Here’s the report on the event from AmeriCorps*NCCC Alum Lee Ellison:
This morning, members of City Year New Hampshire’s Civic Engagement Team including Jodi Harper and Stephen Rodriguez (pictured above) attended the “Ask Mitt Anything” event in Manchester, NH at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
Gov. Romney spoke about many things including how he felt about the benefit of National Service. He mentioned that with the rising cost of secondary education offering a benefit to those who do service, either military or community.
After the hour long question and answer portion Gov. Romney spoke one on one with the group. He stated “Thank you guys for the great work you do. Keep it up!”
See what happened when we caught up with Governor Romney at a similar event in Berlin, NH a few weeks back and asked him about his National Service plan…
